School of the Bible and Ministry

WSBM provides classes to equip Willingdon Church – head, heart and hands – to become more biblically literate and to serve more effectively in church and related ministry.

What is Willingdon School of the Bible and Ministry?

Scripture is the primary way we can know God, and through it we learn what God cares about most in this world, and how we can best participate with Him, using our unique gifts for life and work in His Kingdom. This is why Scripture is the foundation of everything we do in WSBM.

You may have noticed that we added the word “Ministry” to the school’s title. Along with a continued focus on biblical studies, we also hope to equip the people of God for practical service in areas such as pastoral care and community outreach, for ministry both inside and outside the church family.

The psalmist said, “The entrance of your words gives light” (Ps. 119:130). We invite you into this learning community as we welcome together the light of God’s Word into our hearts.
